Dashwood Mausoleum

The Dashwood Mausoleum was built in 1765 and is constructed of Portland stone and flint. Built on the site of an Iron Age Hill Fort on West Wycombe Hill, next to the 14th century church, that was dramatically changed in 1752 by Sir Francis Dashwood. The mausoleum houses urns containing the ashes of the Dashwood family. The golden ball on the church of St Lawrence can be seen behind the mausoleum.

Brillant angle at which this image was taken and very dramatic in B&W.

You have shown this in a very grand manner John.
Certainly a very interestingly shaped building John, I guess this family must have been quite wealthy to have had a place like this built.
